A very nice and candide shot of Tina Turner (76) emerged today on Instagram! Taken earlier today in the streets of Zurich, it seems that the Rock legend graciously agreed to pose in front of a young admirer! Not very Swiss protocole but let’s admit it, it must have taken some guts and the guy got lucky!

2016 will be a Tina Turner Super Year. There are so many anniversaries it will be difficult to find any space left in the calendar which is not filled with albums or singles which were released so many years ago that they already pile up to decades. This introduction into 2016 will prepare you and your nerves for the Tina Turner rollercoaster ride you can expect but for which you might not be ready without seeing the big picture.
1969 – Année Erotique… as sang by French singer Serge Gainsbourg, the song evoke a ludic sexual position as implied in its title “69, Année Erotique” and of course it also testify of the sexual liberations of those years and indeed everywhere in the world it was hot, it was steamy, it was raunchy! Sexual revolution was on its way and with her volcanic performances, 30 years old Tina Turner was a part of this revolution. Ike took advantage of it and of course everybody remember the incendiary rendition of “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” filmed for the Rolling Stones documentary Gimme Shelter. Anyway, knowing it or not as Tina didn’t talk much about feminism through her career she inspired many women and let’s not be scared to say it many men with her incredible charisma. And the image she projected definitely made an impact then and even more later with the release of Private Dancer. But that’s another story. Back to December 1969, the Turner were just back from touring the US with the Rolling Stones, bringing their performances to younger white audiences and getting great revues focusing on Tina’s mesmerizing performances. And to end the year 69 on a hot peak, what else than a performance on the king of the Playboy Empire’s tv-show, Hugh Hefner! Ike must have been thrilled by the idea and the deal! So here they are, Ike & Tina Turner with their Revue, 10 years after their debut in St Louis (Missouri) and at the pinnacle of their career performing , with a four songs showcase! Of course, Tina’s performance is incredible as usual and I know it is not that rare for fans being on Youtube for a while but I don’t think the full segment was and I am quite sure, not in that quality! So I hope everybody enjoys it!
And of course, we wish you a very Happy and Healthy 2016 and like in 1969, let’s wish for Love, Not War.
